This confident yet subtle Beijing HQ for Sunshine Insurance respects its sought-after neighborhood. As the company’s new headquarters in Beijing, Woods Bagot’s third tower for Sunshine Insurance is also the most emblematic.
Woods Bagot also designed sky garden atriums on either side of the 16th and 31st floors. These four interior gardens are visible from the surrounding city, broadcasting the Sunshine brand. Our vision is to maintain the harmony and unity of the architecture and interior design, striving to create a new concept of a humane office that is modern, concise, green and healthy, vibrant and cooperative for Sunshine employees.
The 5-floor, 20,000 sqm podium contains retail spaces that will activate the street and workspaces, meeting rooms, and a clubhouse—curved double screens on three sides reminiscent of the petals of a lotus flower house LEDs that provide a series of visually striking light displays.
“one of our goals was to express the timelessness and stability of the Sunshine brand. As designers of People Architecture, we wanted to provide Sunshine’s workforce with an environment that promotes wellness, productivity, and collaboration, and is integrated into its community.”
“Since we participated in the masterplan and architecture design competition of the Beijing CBD Core Area 12 years ago, until the winning of the Sunshine Financial Center tower, we are so glad to see the tower has now been completed and opened. We are very proud to witness such an amazing piece of architecture raised in the Beijing CBD.”
